Today's Five: Don't go into that castle,Jonathan Harker!

by Nathaniel R

We got a little carried away with our "on this day"posts these past few months.They were meant just to be fun and festive quickies and not take over so REDUCEREDUCE.Moving forward we'll give you 5 reasons to celebrate any given day because a) we're trying to stay positive b) it's good to be alive and c) who knows how much longer we'll be able to do that with nut-job man-babies running the world's most weaponized countries?So put on your party hatseveryday,is the point.

Five Showbiz-Related Anniversaries (May 3rd)

2002Sam Raimi's pop and playful superhero pictureSpider-Manopens in theaters to massive then record-breaking returns.We were all so innocent back then.There was really only Batman and Spider-Man (Superman still on his long hiatus) and no "universes"to obsess over.If only even 1/10ths of the superhero pictures that came after it these past 15 years were shot as inventively (but they can't all be Raimis)

In its honor today: Look at yourself in the mirror the appreciative way Tobey Maguire does when he wakes up after that spider-bite,improved.You're awesome.Maybe you just didn't notice it before?

RIP: Lupita Tovar & Robert Vaughn

Didn't mean to let these two farewells slip by.


After the death of Luise Rainer,Lupita Tovarheld the title of 'The Oldest Living Screen Star of Note' for a few years.She died Sunday at the 106 years of age so here's to enduring genes.The Mexican actress's original claim to fame was starring in the Spanish version of the famous horror pictureDracula(1931).Though her last movie was in 1945 she continued to affect the movies via her gene pool...

Guardians Up,Captain Down at the Saturn Awards

The Saturn Awards,which began in the 1970s,get increasingly more confusing each decade.When they first began they were very sci-fi/fantasy niche and now they regularly seem to honor films that don't have anything at all to do with once geeky now mainstream genres like that.Consider that they have nine best picture type categories and they're expansive enough in their definitions that at least half of Oscar's Best Picture nominees were nominated for something andWhiplashandThe Theory of Everythingeven get to be Best Film winners -- neither of which seem at all "genre"though I supposeThe Theory ofEverythingis kinda cosmic in that it has a genre icon in Stephen Hawkings as its subject.

The big winners at the annual event wereInterstellarandGuardians of the Galaxy.The big loser wasCaptain America: Winter Soldierwhich had the most nominations of all (11) and managed to lose them each one.Complete list of winners after the jump...

RIP: Ron Moody & Christopher Lee

Though their careers were dissimilar,their images were not.The cinema lost two of its most deeply enjoyable sharp eyed bearded villains this week: Oscar nominee Ron Moody (Oliver!),died yesterday at 91 years of age;screen legend Christopher Lee's passing was also just announced though he died last week at 93.Both of these British actors,born in the 1920s,were best known for indelible villains and sorcerers and  both were singers,too.From there,of course,the careers significantly diverge.

Ron Moodywas always best known as "Fagin,"the petty thief with a whole gang of young pickpockets at his disposal in the Best Picture winnerOliver!(1968) for which he received a Best Actor nomination and won the Golden Globe.The role stuck to him as forcefully as the Emcee clung to Joel Grey defining him for decades and decades and audiences of multiple generations.His movie career,though it spanned 33 films,didn't contain many other highlights but he did play the sorcerer Merlin in two Disney filmsUnidentified Flying OddballandA Kid in King Arthurs Court.He returned to the stage often including revivals ofOliver!(He didn't seem to resent how much Fagin defined him,calling the musical "magic".)

If you ask people to nameSirChristopher Lee's most famous role,on the other hand,they might well hesitate.There is nothing definitive or,rather,there istoo muchthat is definitive.He was a genuine screen legend and worked what seemed like non-stop from 1948 through 2015 appearing in nearly 200 films before his death.Today it's nothing new for actors to be defined by franchise stardom but Christopher Lee was doing forever.He was best known for decades as the face of "Dracula"for Hammer Horror in several films,"Fu Manchu"in multiple films and "Rochefort"in two Three Musketeer films.The actor's fame rose again late in life through prominent popular roles such as "Count Dooku"in theStar Wars franchise and the wicked sorceror "Saruman"multiple times in Peter Jackson's Tolkien adaptations.

Please share your favorite screen memories of these two acclaimed Brits.
